These refried bean and meat-optional tostadas save the day.
Heat the refried beans and any meat, if using in the microwave or on the stovetop.
Place the ingredients in separate bowls on the table and serve 1-2 tostadas per person on a dinner plate.
Spread each tostada with the refried beans and top with meat, if using. Mound the tostada with lettuce and top to taste with cheese, avocado, tomato radish slilces and cilantro.
Squeeze a wedge of lime over the toppings and add salsa and sour cream to taste. Serve with plenty of napkins.
